Those seeking the perfect day trip in Wisconsin have got to check out Bayfield. This little gem in the North Woods is a great mix of the indoors and outdoors. It has clothing, books, and resale shops to bring folks in, and hiking, kayaking and sailing to keep folks out. Moreover, Northerners in these parts don’t shy away from winter, either. This is when they brave huge dangling icicles from frozen Lake Superior caves and drive the “ice road” across the bay.

Whether you visit for sailing and scuba diving in the summer, the apple festival in fall, or a winter trip where you can essentially drive across parts of Lake Superior, you’ll be thirsty after your day. Unwind with one of several local microbrews, as beer has been part of Wisconsin culture for decades. Bayfield, with all of its delights, is sure to become one of your favorite destinations.
